Life was supposed to get easier, once Arlanna broke out of prison.
On top of figuring out how to house, clothe and feed five hundred escaped convicts, Arlanna must now find a way to barter for their freedom. There are some concessions she's willing to give the king in exchange for their records to be expunged, but the one thing she's withholding is the only token the king demands.
Living with Paxton and Gray was supposed to be a dream come true, but when the world aims their critical stares at the three, Arlanna isn't sure if they'll want to continue on by her side.
The ancient magic coming back into play has its challenges, but when the king and the infamous Conan Valentine get their hands on more power than they should possess, the delicate balance of the world starts to spin out of control. Arlanna knows that if she doesn't intervene, it won't just be her household on the brink of collapse...
... the entire world might go up in flames.

JUST HOW FAR WAS TOO FAR?
Life was passing 25-year-old Claire MacDonald by. Okay, so she had a steady office job (but paying barely minimum wage), a too-perfect steady boyfriend (a 'keeper', as Mum constantly reminded her) and a roof over her head (albeit in Deptford), but surely there had to be more in life for her than that?
Then she found a bag, an expensive Prada rucksack abandoned at Waterloo station. She couldn't believe her luck. Not just expensive but ridiculously so, a little ray of luxury on that cold winter morning. And she'd been looking for a new bag and the overdraft was growing out of control.
So she took it.
And, once she'd met the bag's owner, the enigmatic Barclay, Claire's predictable, routine life became more thrilling and deadly than she had ever dreamed it could be as she embarked on a career as the getaway driver for a man seemingly out of control.

Divorced, disillusioned and drinking too much, television writer Alex Munn is on the edge.
For two years he's been working on the ultimate drama series, a ratings-winning schlockfest of sex, adventure and violence that uses Virtix, a virtual reality technology so good the viewer won't be able to tell the difference between real life and Real Life, the new show.
To get away from it all, Alex has written an altogether darker story of his own: a Virtix program he calls Munn's World. It depicts New York in the 1850s, complete with horse-drawn carriages and its very own serial killer - the Fishman - who prowls the gas-lit, poverty-stricken streets, disembowelling his victims.
His nemesis is a lone cop called Alex Munn.
What happens next is impossible, unscripted, and utterly terrifying. For the Fishman has somehow escaped his virtual domain and followed Alex into the present, turning his world into a living nightmare...

This novel is the second book in the FALL FOR ME series but can be read as a complete stand-alone.
His wife was dead. The cerebral hemorrhage which finally claimed her after a terrible car accident had left him alone and feeling much older than his years. He'd married young and half his life had been spent as a provider, a faithful husband and the father of two grown children. He felt he was far closer now at forty-four to his end, than to his beginning. He'd stopped living. His lawn untended, food of no importance, business in the dumps... only his dog, his constant companion, claimed his attention.
A walk in the park, his first in a month, finally got him out of his house. Kody, his bright white furry beast, always the most magnificent creature in the park, drew her to him. She did not see the pain or the suffering, the self-doubt and the resignation to a future alone. All she could see was the devilishly handsome guy... kind, gentle, cultured and intelligent. A man in need and yet a man who could give so much to those around him. It may have been his chick-magnet dog that ...

Emersonia also has a well-developed space program. The Emersonians knew that humanity needed a second and third home away from Earth and so they worked towards that goal.

The 25th century. Humanity has discovered a new form of energy, the Source, derived from the very basis of life itself. Using this power to travel instantaneously through space, humans have spread through their corner of the galaxy and coalesced into two groups: the Coalition and the Inner Cluster. They are held in an uneasy economic and cultural relationship by their reliance on each other, the Coalition with the technology of the Source and the Inner Cluster with the materials to make it a usable form of energy. When rumors of conquest, political undergrounds, and alien contact threaten this balance of powers, it falls to three individuals to find the truth of the conspiracies swirling through their governments and to stave off a disastrous war. What they find in the process will change the course of humanity forever.

FUN CITY is made up of six major areas - The Beach, the Red Zone, the Central Business District, Metroland, Main Street and the Dark Side.

It does not get any bigger than this. No, seriously. All of my Futanari science fiction stories in one massive collection. The saga of Futanarious, Queen Kiki, the crew of the Lustful Intentions, and the futanari space pirates, and the mysterious Jeeny Ma, who controls the entire galaxy from her dim sum restaurant.
Let's not forget a mysterious key made from blue ruby with a gold and silver inlay. What mysteries does this key hold and what does it mean for the galaxy? Just why is this key so valuable and why would anyone in their right mind steal three sacks of gold from Jeeny Ma?
Then there is the unfinished story of a futanari backpacker who hitches rides from star system to star system searching for cool concerts, festivals, and an all around good time.
There are over one hundred and ten thousand words written in this saga so far with many more to come as the lives of everyone revolve around this mysterious key.
It seemed like an easy enough job, which is why former cop and marginal private detective, Lyman Henry, agreed to take it: find the person who killed the son of respected Phoenix businessman, Williams Smoot, the man with two last names.There was only one trifling problem. The confessed murderer was already in jail. But Henry figured he'd simply work around that niggling quandary. Business wasn't exactly booming and he needed the $10,000 that Williams Smoot agreed to pay him for a few days' work.Besides, hunger never saw bad bread. It didn't take long, however, for Henry to realize that things were not entirely, or even slightly, what they appeared to be at first glance. His investigation into Freddie Smoot's murderrapidly deteriorates into a quagmire of treachery, deceit, and abominable criminality. A detective thriller brimming with arresting characters and startling plot twists, readers will not easily put aside the extraordinary 'The Man With Two Last Names.'
However, when you are someone like me - an assassin trained to operate in any extreme situations or scenario, you do not tend to worry about the thought that you are about to be thrown out of an air lock. Oh, this was ridiculously stupid.
The comm crackled and a voice started to speak
"Assassin, did you really think it would be that easy to get me on my own station? I am giving you one last chance to get the weight off your chest. Tell me who hired you to kill me. Not that that would stop what is about to happen and release you free, but at least you would be able to go to your next life with a clear conscience. Ha ha"
I looked my would-be murderer in the eye and just laughed. I shook my head full and said nothing. Whilst he was talking, I had been using the internal systems of my Armor to see and fix all the joints. It also acted as a very thin mobile air suit. I waited for them to get fed up with my silence. Frustrated, they would push the button to open the doors which would pull ...
Being trapped in a secret facility by an elite terrorist organization was not what CIA Analyst Dante Tucker had envisioned when he took over the investigation of Gamze Nezhekt's death a week ago. Since he took the job he had been hunted in the Everglades, watched Miami burn, barely survived a firefight within a bank, nearly lost his job, and watched his men get gunned down by a merciless enemy. The same enemy that stood between him and the truth.
Good thing his partner, Sgt. Nicolas "Edge" Pierce, brought friends that were more than ready to show this mysterious organization that their time is at an end. As Edge and Tucker gain key intel on the Order's existence and its role in the attack on Miami, their enemy is now forced to lash out in an attempt to regain control.
As the mountains shudder in Oregon, and the streets of DC become a battlefield, the final act is underway...
and neither side is about to give in.

The Bastion Prosecutor - Episode 1
Futuristic trilogy "The Bastion Prosecutor" is about man's legacy on planet Earth. It is about where our ancestors may have come from as much as where faith dictates we did. It is a glimpse into a future. It is about the antagonism between learning and belief; science and religion; a dilemma that has risen and waned since the earliest civilisations. It is about conviction, not just in accepted ideals but also the unacceptable.
"The Bastion Prosecutor" is about the frontiers of space. Man's inevitable pursuit of the unknown and his innate necessity to colonise; driven in this case as much by environmental calamity as by instinct. It is about technology and the misuse of knowledge.
"The Bastion Prosecutor" is about high adventure and love, about deceit, greed and the unexpected. It is about a tapestry of secrets where threads pass from the past to the future. Finally, it is about hope.
